The brewpub at the new headquarters for Spring House Brewing Co. opens today in Lancaster.
The brewpub at 209 Hazel St. is in the converted warehouse where the craft brewery recently began making its beer.
Beer was previously brewed at a converted barn at the Conestoga home of head brewer Matt Keasey, who founded the brewery in 2007.
The new brewpub is just west of Prince Street, five blocks south of the Spring House Taproom at 25 W. King St.
The brewpub has seating inside for about 100, with space for another 40 on a patio.
There are 12 beers on tap and a menu of what Keasey calls “upscale bar food," including burgers, sandwiches, steaks and seafood. Entrees include duck ragout, seared rockfish and pan roasted poulet.
There's also a selection of salads as well as a charcuterie board, smoked chicken wings and fried green tomatoes.
The brewpub has about 25 employees.
Keasey said the brewpub could be expanded with a small bar on the second level of the brewery for private parties and small events. That could be built by Christmas, he said.
